We just got a tip from reader Silver that police just received a call about an explosion in Ballard.
Someone in a blue vehicle—possibly an SUV—pulled over near 24th and 58th NW and dropped off some sort of device, which promptly exploded.
No word on any injuries, and we’re not currently seeing anything on the 911 log.
In the last few months, police have responded to several other bomb/explosion calls in Ballard and several other north end neighborhoods.
More info if we get it.
Update: This may not have been all it was cracked up to be. Will probably have more info in the AM.
